Grading

Letter Grades

Letter grades indicate a student’s level of achievement on a particular assignment, test, or activity. On the report card, letter grades indicate a student’s overall achievement in a particular subject. Each letter grade indicates a specific level of achievement.

A Outstanding, a strong college recommending grade
B Good, a college recommending grade
C Satisfactory
D Unsatisfactory
F Fail, no credit (0 units)
I Incomplete (only for exceptional circumstance

A grade of “I” (incomplete) given at the semester report can only be made up to a passing grade within three (3) weeks after the end of the semester. The Incomplete (I) will be changed to an “F” if work is not satisfactorily completed in this time period.Note: The grade of “F” (Failure) will be given whenever a student fails to meet the minimum objectives of the course.

Grade Scales

The following school grading scale is used in classes:

Percentage Letter Grade Transcript Value
93-100 A 4.0
90-92 A- 3.7
87-89 B+ 3.3
83-86 B 3.0
80-82 B- 2.7
77-79 C+ 2.3
73-76 C 2.0
70-72 C- 1.7
67-69 D+ 1.3
63-66 D 1.0
60-62 D- 0.7
59 and below F 0.0

Honors/AP Grade ScaleStudents enrolled a course with an honors or A.P. designation earn a higher grade point average based on different point values assigned for grades. This system mirrors the University of California admissions grade point system. This does not apply to courses deemed "accelerated."

Grade Point Average

Each student earns a grade-point-average in relation to the letter grades given on the student’s report card. A student’s report card indicates a student’s Total-Grade-Point-Average. This average is calculated by summing all the points a student earned in a grading period and dividing that total by the total number of classes in which the student was enrolled. This average has only one use. It is used in calculating a student’s eligibility for athletic participation.

In addition, each student earns an Academic-Grade-Point-Average that is calculated on the student’s transcript in the Registrar’s Office. This Academic-Grade-Point-Average is an academic average that excludes Physical Development, student government, newspaper, music performance, and yearbook grades. This average is calculated by summing all the points from individual courses a student earned in a grading period, excluding non-academic course points, and dividing that total by the total number of classes, excluding non-academic courses, in which the student was enrolled. This average is used in calculating a student’s academic rank in the student’s class at Delhi High. Colleges and universities also use the Academic-Grade-Point-Average in the admissions process.

Report Cards and Aeries

DHS uses two methods of reporting grades for students.

  1. Teachers provide grade information on a semi-monthly basis. This information includes specifics on student grades such as homework assignments, quizzes, class participation, projects, and exams. Parents and students may review a student’s progress by consulting Aeries.Parents will create a unique login and password that will allow them to see grades for all of their students attending DHS. Student progress should be checked regularly by parents (we recommend twice a month) and questions or concerns about student progress should be directed to the students' teachers.
  2. Report cards are distributed on Report Card Nights. Grades on the second and fourth report cards are the semester grades and are the basis on which credit for the semester’s work is determined. Only semester grades appear on the transcripts. The first and third quarter report cards are considered formal student progress reports.
